Summer's Over :(

Oh no my summer vacation is over.  Tomorrow I will be sitting in teacher in-service meetings learning all about what this next year will be like.  I am so not ready yet.  I have lots left to do in my classroom.  It will be hard just listening all day.  I know I'll bring my new ipad and surf the web.  Yes, I have a plan.

      I asked our staff to take a picture of themselves reading in unusual places for a bulletin board display to promote reading.  Here is my little photo. 

   Yes, I'm planking while reading the book "I'll Save You Bobo"

I can't wait to see what other staff members at my school come up with.  I just thought this would be a fun way to start the year.  Where would you take a picture?

So my little photo project is a no go.  I had only one response to the project.  I am putting this project on hold for now.  I will be doing a similar project with my Skyping partner from Iowa Laurie Hilton and the one and only chance taker, Beth Hilsabeck from Texas.  Our plan is to have our kids draw a picture a month, scan it, then send it.  I am so excited!  3 parts of the country with lots to compare.  I'm wondering if there is a way to do a 3 way Skype.

Have a terrific year!
Remember to be kind!

  7 Days until school starts :)


  1. Wow! Planking while reading...quite impressive! :) I am so sad your great photo project is a no go, but I am very excited for the calendar project...and 3-way it!! :) Good luck staying on-task tomorrow! :) :) :)

  2. Oh Laurie,
    It was hard to stay on task today. My butt is a bit sore. I am also looking forward to our little calendar project. Thank you for being so flexible and helping to figure out a new way for our project to work. I do have another idea for another project but it will be for a little later. I hope all is well with your new class. I look forward to "seeing" you on skype soon.
